Dannii Minogue recalls meeting a young Princess Diana

‘She was very nervous’: Singer Dannii Minogue recalls meeting a young Princess Diana – and questioned why she was ‘dressed like an 80-year-old’

Dannii Minogue has shared some of her most memorable moments of the 1990s, including meeting a young Princess Diana

The singer and the beloved royal crossed paths at the Children’s Royal Variety Performance at The London Palladium in 1991, where the pop star sang her hit, Success. 

‘She was very young. She was very nervous. They were her first Royal engagements where she was on her own,’ Dannii, 49, told News Corp on Monday.

Dannii felt Diana had on clothing that wasn’t suitable for the then-30-year-old Princess, and appeared ill at ease. 

‘I remember looking at her thinking, “You look like you dressed up as a woman who’s 80 years old.” It was really like she’d been styled by the queen’s mother. 

‘She was just the little Princess Diana with the chin down, looking up at you. And I felt sorry for her, because you could feel the nerves.’

The This Is It performer added that Diana – who split from Prince Charles in 1992 – later, ‘found her fashion mojo’.  

Dannii also said ‘nothing prepared her’ for the Royal Command Performances. 

‘You’re suddenly backstage at the Palladium waiting to meet a very young Princess Diana in a line-up with The Rolling Stones. Nothing prepares you,’ she said.

Speaking to Yahoo! Lifestyle on Monday, Dannii discussed living in the UK during the ’90s.

‘I soon found myself living in London during one of the most exciting times in music and pop culture,’ she said.

‘I sported the skunk streak, mom jeans and chokers and loved every minute of it!’ 

The actress and performer will next appear as a judge on the new season of The Masked Singer Australia.
